Hello Ladies! We had a nice, quiet and relaxing holiday over here, so much so that I never got out of my pajamas, and we ate leftovers for dinner! Kids were happy with their "big" presents - DD got a bow with arrows and a target to shoot at, and DS got a sand and water table. Both woke up at 5 am, but as their stockings were in their rooms, they got up and opened the presents in their stockings together, played with the stuff they got, and didn't get us out of bed until 7 am, yay! But needless to day, DS went down for a nap around 11 and didn't get up until about 3! And given DS went down for a nap, and as the weather was gorgeous on Christmas, we spent a few hours outside in the backyard (yes, I went outside in my pj's!) and enjoyed the weather while my DD (and *ahem* DH) shot off arrows. Great day all around, I must say. And finally tonight, we ate our Christmas dinner - and I made a pretty good dish of GF/DF scalloped potatoes (of course I'm the only one who really liked it - my DH said they were "okay", my DD didn't like them, and DS said they were yummy but them promptly smooshed them in his hands instead of eating them).
Add us to the list of cyber sick, although pretty mild - DS and I have a mild cold, but have been using cell salts pretty successfully to help the process along.
And what present did I get that was my "favorite"? That would be have 2+ days of (mostly) an even keeled, happy go lucky DD - she has been a lot of fun to be around and do stuff with! And that hasn't happened since, well...not really ever. The changes we have made diet and supps wise really feel like they have been worth it, if these results continue!
Sandrine, I'm so sorry that you having to deal with painful kidney stones. My BIL just went through that, and after both laser treatment and surgery, he is feeling better. I hope you are able to manage to hold any procedure off until after you give birth, while being able to manage the pain sufficiently.
CS, I had what I thought was ezcema, but my ND said it look like psorasis, on my elbows for about 2+ months. Not sure what I did to have it go away, but I don't have it any more. I did up my zinc and selenium, and was already taking EFAs, but don't know that any of those are the reason that it went away. But the healing could be related to me starting Wobenzym (I know, enzymes, so not your thing! ). Not that any of this rambling helps you in the least. But I did want you to know that I know that it sucks bigtime! I used to get it in the wintertime a lot when I was in my teens living in upstate NY, but hadn't really had it since, until this fall. I DO have this small patch of dry skin on my back, right below my bra line. REEEAAALLLLLYYYY annoying, as I can't really scratch it well myself!!!!!
